Ah, Sweden. It's more than just universal health care and beautiful blondes. The Swedes are once again flaunting their technological savvy and hitting the record books with the floating sauna, the SS Silla.

The Silla is officially touted as the world's fastest floating sauna -- screaming along at 15 knots (or a gentle 17 mph).

Why a floating sauna, you might ask? We aren't sure, other than for bragging rights. Perhaps it's to zoom up and down the chilly Swedish coastline while keeping warm. We're hoping the Swedes continue this innovation streak with a Jacuzzi rocket ship or a classy motorcycle sidecar/bidet.
